Thank you Andy and Andrew. ( The A's have it. ) 0xA0 is a non-breaking space
in Latin-1 and the validator chokes on it.

I had thought that this was the problem 10 days ago when this first started
to happen. I removed and replaced all the empty spaces, just like you
suggested--I just didn't get them all. There were about two DOZEN of them
throughout the page. (I think the text editor called TextEdit that I
occasionally have used outputs the little buggers.)

Anyway, Thanks very much!

Donimo.
